Sandvik

Sandvik’s AutoMine™ and AutoMine-Lite™ systems are highly innovative automation systems where operators, who would normally drive a single heavy-duty machine underground, can now sit in the comfort and safety of an air-conditioned control room on surface, and simultaneously monitor the movements of a fleet of driverless loaders or trucks hundreds of meters below the surface. Mine automation solutions lead to several benefits: increased fleet utilization, improved working conditions and safety, increased production, and reduced maintenance costs due to optimized tramming speeds and smoother equipment operation.
